Long and Low. The Way to Go.
The V Star 950 features the longest wheelbase in its class for that stretched look and incredible straight-line cruisability, along with an ultra-low seat height of just 26.5 inches. A fuel injected, air-cooled V-twin working eight valves via roller rockers provides plenty of thumping torque and power for real open road cruising. A fat tire out back and a final belt drive get the power to the ground and look good doing it.
Fuel economy estimates are based on US EPA exhaust emission certification data obtained by Yamaha. Your actual mileage will vary depending on road conditions, how you ride and maintain your vehicle, accessories, cargo, and operator/passenger weight.
